Cardiac Care at Jennersville Hospital focuses on the functions and disorders of the heart and its connected circulatory system. According to the American Heart Association, 84 million people in the U.S. suffer from some form of cardiovascular disease, affecting blood flow throughout the body. Cardiovascular disease can lead to heart attacks, strokes or other serious complications.
To assist your physician in diagnosing heart related issues, Jennersville Hospital offers the following outpatient services through our cardiology department:
- Cardiolyte Stress Test- a diagnostic test used to evaluate the adequacy of blood supply to the heart muscle. The test can be done on a treadmill or with a medication to simulate exercise. Images are compared at rest and after exercise to visualize blood flow to different areas of the heart.
- Echocardiogram- a diagnostic test that uses ultrasound to make an image of the inside of the heart. The test allows the doctor to see the structures (walls, valves, chambers) of the heart and how they function.
- EKG- a test used to make a graph of the electrical activity generated by the heart.
- Holter Monitor- a small portable device that is worn to record the heart's electrical activity during a 24-hour period. This diagnostic test evaluates heart rate and rhythm while the individual goes through their daily activities.
